Leicester defender Simpson: This is why Slimani has slot in so easily...

Leicester City defender Danny Simpson claims that new signing Islam Slimani has slotted perfectly in the Foxes' squad due to his work ethic.

The 28-year-old striker, who signed for the Foxes in a £29million move from Sporting Lisbon on deadline day, started his life in the Premier League by scoring a brace in the 3-0 win over Burnley on Saturday.

"He has done well, Riyad Mahrez is here and knows him from Algeria but he is integrating in the team really well," said Simpson.

"He works his socks off and that's what we're about. That's why it has been easy for him to slot in."
